Forget your old alarm system. This drone will protect your house.


A new startup wants to turn drones into guardian angels for our homes.

Sunflower Labs -- with headquarters in Silicon Valley and Zurich, Switzerland -- announced a new security system on Thursday that detects possible threats and investigates them with a drone.

The drone streams video to your smartphone, so you can see and decide if your home is at risk or not.

Sunflower Labs, which is now accepting participant applications, will start beta tests in mid-2017. The startup sees itself as a complement to traditional alarms.
